From the founders of the original ELR shooting experience

What is “Extreme Long Range?”

Generally, mid-range shooting is considered 300 to 600 yards, 600 to 1,200 is considered long range, 1,200 yards to one mile is considered extreme long range (ELR), and one mile and beyond is considered Extended ELR. 

Some shooters have used the term “extended long range” interchangeably with “extreme.”

  • Mid-Range: 300 to 600 yards
  • Long-Range: 600 to 1,200 yards
  • Extreme Long Range (ELR): 1,200 yards to one mile
  • Extended ELR: Beyond 1,800 yards

Some serious long range shooters will disagree about the arbitrary distances we mention above, which is a good thing because it makes for excellent post-match arguments with these light-beer drinkers.
